Istanbul Karada and Medina

critiquePosted by Daniel Graziadei 2016-07-05 02:55:47

Istanbul Karada now Medina

The architects of horror

are pounding hatred

without mercy

onto the playing

and the praying

people of peace

ful preparations of celebrations

of charity and happiness

While people of peace prepare

their houses and their hearts

for the breaking

of their fast

mass murderers try to break

them fast and furiously

I read death-counts and latest news helplessly

like back in 2003

I turn

and breathe and ground myself and open up

and then I pray

May the children and their parents, may all the women and all the men rest in peace.

May all victims of terror and hatred and fear rest in peace. May the survivors find peace in their hearts.

May we overcome all divisive ideologies of hate and greed with new acts of kindness and peace.

May we allow ourselves

to turn from reaction to action

allow ourselves to overstand

allow ourselves to overcome

in love and peace

Hereby I oppose the ways we treat pioneers who cross the deserts, mountains and seas in order to reach our shores

Walk on, citizen, walk on

And while I drive by in one of these wonderful vehicles of communal transportation

I see barriers and I see cops dressed for the third world war

protecting a fountain and a hilly square

where migrants had protested in the cold open

until they decided to stop taking any fluid

as to protest their incarceration in the name of illegal immigration

under conditions unbearable to the pioneer

who came for a better life in safety and an open sphere of possibilities

The ministry of interior could not calm the temptation

to bust them in full force and two hundred strong

bring protest from the square back to incarceration

All clean all empty all fenced now

and I drive by in one of these wonderful vehicles of communal transportation

and shout at those men dressed for another class war

that shame is on them

and their upholding of an order

of walk on walk on

and there is nothing to see

Consume collect inflict and thereby be

walk on walk on

the dark side is not here for you to see

walk on walk on

or meet the force of temptation

to quell you into moderation

walk on walk on

there is nothing left to see
